I do not think you can do it with Tooltip, but you can do it with
Button, as follows:

Button["Click Here", EmitSound[Sound[SoundNote[]]],
 AutoAction -> True, Appearance -> None]

As you see, it does not work too well, because it sounds whenever
there is a mouseover event and this happens quite often.
I do not think you can obtain an effective sound interface with
mouseover events.
Better use the mouse click (take away the AutoAction option above).
